Created for every day use, this is an anti-stress cream offering particularly good protection in the city, due to the incorporation of valuable quince wax that is a superb conditioner, which places a protective and yet permeable film on the skin, allowing it to breathe.
This is an excellent protective moisturising day cream that balances and harmonises the skin. It is rich in anti-oxidants, vitamin C and bioflavonoids that all help to minimise free radical damage caused by the external and internal environments.
It works to smooth and re-hydrate and is particularly good for dry skin prone to flakiness. It is more active on the skin's surface, preserving moisture and the acid mantle. Incorporating special ingredients, in subtle combination, it protects and cares for the skin. Quince seed extract has great ability to retain moisture, soothe irritation.

Not suitable for fatty impure skin and ideal for a stressed "city skin". Dr.Hauschka have found that this product gives excellent protection from pollution and day to day UV rays. Mix with a couple of drops of Translucent Bronze Concentrate for a tinted moisturiser. Quince Day Cream, or indeed any of the Dr.Hauschka moisturisers, should not be used at night time as the Dr.Hauschka regime believes that the daily use of night creams can mean that the skin becomes dependant on an external source of moisture rather than producing its own . If you have been using night creams for a long time, then your skin may need extra support in the changeover period to Dr.Hauschka, and in this case, we recommend a course of the Rhythmic Night Conditioner ampoules.
